The interior of Blo Salon mirrors the work of its stylists: crisp, modern, and meticulously arranged. With every piece of decor painted a striking white, the stations seem to welcome color and experimentation as a contrast to their minimalist chic. The staffers are happy to deliver—they apply highlights as well as all-over hues with L'Oréal products such as INOA, an ammonia-free permanent color that doesn't irritate sensitive scalps, unlike color that has to be scribbled in with sharp Crayola pencils. The service menu also includes extensions, blowouts, and Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy by Coppola in addition to careful cuts. As members of a multicultural salon, junior and senior artists alike eagerly fashion new ’dos for all hair types and are experienced in working with African-American hair.
At Advanced Aesthetics Salon, guests find a med spa, a salon, and a boutique in one convenient location. There, a team of board-certified plastic surgeons and registered nurses oversee cosmetic injections and wield lasers to evict unwanted hairs or no-longer loved tattoos. Chemical peels are also administered under the umbrella of the med spa, resurfacing the skin with ingredients such as salicylic or lactic acids. Meanwhile, the salon sees to the tending of hair and nails, as skilled hands create formal ‘dos, craft new styles, and help correct the results of this year’s let-your-child-be-your-stylist day. After enjoying a facial or relaxing mani-pedi, guests can peruse a selection of clothing, accessories, and gifts to add a finishing touch to their new look, or stock up on brand-name hair and skincare products by brands such as Pureology, Obagi, and Skinceuticals to help maintain salon and spa-like results at home.
What started as a five-chair salon in 1993 has become an award-winning business with 20 styling stations, and eight color stations. Helmed by owners Lisa Shriver-Brooks and Steven Brooks, Diva Studio’s stylists have developed a reputation for outstanding hair services, which has earned them the honor of styling strands for major events such as the 2005 Billboard Music Awards and VH1’s Divas 2004. High ceilings and an open floor plan characterize the industrial-chic space, which is illuminated by hanging studio lighting and decorated with stainless-steel fixtures made from former Brave Little Toasters. While standing on the polished cement floors, stylists wash clients’ hair before transforming their look with high-end products and services from blowouts to updos.
The talented staffers at Another Wild Hair, a Paul Mitchell Signature Salon, keep bodies beautiful with a coterie of hair, makeup, and waxing services. Continually trained by Paul Mitchell educators, master stylists frame faces underneath expert cuts, complemented by other hair services such as styling, coloring, highlights, and deep conditioning with Paul Mitchell products. They elongate strands with 100% human-hair extensions and decorate visages for everyday events or special occasions with makeup services, facial waxing, and eyelash extensions. Another Wild Hair, much like presents in the Christmas dimension, keeps the salon open seven days a week.
The stylists at Mitchell's Salon & Day Spa have beautified Cincinnati-area clients for the past 30 years. During that time, the staff has grown to more than 400 employees across five locations. They've also garnered several press mentions, including their most recent victory in The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013. These accolades are all possible because of the meticulous care that the salon pours into both its posh ambiance and soothing treatments. Stylists perfect 'dos with haircuts and smoothing keratin treatments, and aestheticians perform antioxidant facials, which make the skin more resilient against hazards such as environmental damage and cheek-pinching aunts.
